West University Little League wrapped up another season of its Challenger division. This league offers players with physical and mental challenges a chance to play baseball and have a rewarding experience, regardless of their limitations. Challenger gives every player, ages 5 through their final year of high school, with the opportunity to participate in a structured athletic program and have a wonderful time. Each game is guided by the leadership of adult coaches and middle school- and high school-aged volunteers who serve as Challenger buddies. Participating families travel from all around Houston to come to West University Little League’s Main Campus to play on Sunday. Challenger Sundays have become a special tradition at WULL, featuring an atmosphere of caring, friendships, smiles, and lifelong bonds. This year, the league had record participation with 102 players and 223 buddies. With only two rainouts all season and sunny Sundays the rest, it was a huge win.
